Italy 4th-14th June 2012

Jump to last reply

I would be traveling with my mother and 15 year old brother. Our first time in Europe.

We will be arriving Milan on the morning of 4th June and flying out of Milan late morning on 14th June.

We were thinking of 3 nights in Milan, probably one day trip to either Lake Como or Lugano. It also happens to be my brother's birthday on the 5th of June so is there any special restaurant or activity that you would recommend we go to celebrate his birthday?

Following that would be 3 nights in rome. We want to be in rome on the 7th for the corpus domini mass. What time does it normally start and do we need some form of admission?

We also have the Scavi Tour booked on the 9th at 10.45am. We are thinking of visiting St Peter's before the trip, what time would be good to arrive at St Peter? We would probably end at around 12.30, and understand that restaurants do not normally open until 1? But we are thinking of going to the Vatican Museum at around 2. Would we be able to make it?

We are planning to then head to Foligno on the 11 for the tavens before the Giostra della Quintana? It sounds interesting visiting an 'ancient' market but I am not sure if it is worth the trip to go to Foligno just for it.

Probably head to Florence on the 12th, staying 1 night. Was thinking of going to the Prada Outlet.

We would then head back to Milan for the last night before flying back the next day.

Would be a pity to miss Venice? It couldn't seem to fit the plan if we had to be in Rome on the 7th for the mass and then the 11th for the knights carnival. Should we skip the carnival and florence, and head to Venice after Rome?

Thanks!
